There was an article on the radio a couple of weeks ago about a shortage of blood available to vets for animal surgery. Something you never think about, but it is obviously a vital resource and in much need of support. HMc put these ads together and sent them down to the ‘Pet blood bank’ as a token of our support. They really liked them but said they couldn’t possibly use them. It turns out that in the USA, unscrupulous people breed dogs for this very purpose, keeping them half starved and in squalid conditions - the collective noun they use to describe them is ‘blood Hounds!’ Well, you live and learn, still a nice set of ads though!
